TNS opinion today presented the results of its survey "Poll: A Snapshot ahead of Armenia's Presidential Elections", which describes the moods, voting preferences and motivations of the Armenian voters just before the beginning of the official electoral campaign period.
For this TNS opinion poll, implemented together with their local partner IPSC, 1,607 face-to-face interviews were conducted in all 10 regions (marzes) and 12 communities of Yerevan between 15 and 20 January 2013, using the highest possible standards and extensive quality control measures, as outlined below.
The poll was commissioned by European Friends of Armenia (www.EuFoA.org) in order to contribute to a factual debate ahead of the elections.
"Sixty-nine percent of the respondents have decided to go to the polls on Election Day (February 18). This is really a good surprise given the fact that three of the four parliamentary candidates decided not to contest the upcoming ballot or support the candidate of other forces. While part of the supporters of the aforesaid forces libeled the decision as ‘wrong,' most of them take elections seriously and will go to the polls on February 18," said Steve Schwarzer, irector for Methods and Statistics at TNS opinion in Brussels.
